A New Astrology: Basics of Star Wisdom (Series 2)
with Brian Gray, Robert Schiappacasse, & David Tresemer, Ph.D.
A Six-Part Series | Recorded January-March 2021
This is a unique program in Western sidereal astrology based in anthroposophy. Our aim? To understand the patterns in our connections—personal and for the world—with celestial events. If you feel called to develop such a skill, then please join this exploration in a “New Astrology.”
Series 1 introduced participants to the foundations of a new western anthroposophic sidereal astrology - creating your birth chart, how to read your own chart, as well as the birth-moment charts of others. Each of the six parts included recordings and handouts to support further study, and the recordings are excellent. We strongly recommend that you participate in Series 1 before joining Series 2 as we introduced the building blocks that are essential before zooming deeper into the heavens.
Series 2 begins with a quick review of what we achieved in the first Series. Each of the six presentations within this series emphasizes a basic skill to further your understanding, as well as specific applications of star wisdom. In every meeting, sample charts are read together, with an emphasis in learning to understand the moment of birth and the potential in a life understood through relationship to the beings of the starry worlds.
Whether you are an experienced astrologer or astrosopher, or you are new to these pursuits, this course is for anyone serious about self-knowledge, and assisting others, through the lens of star wisdom.
This course includes six content-rich, recorded meetings, each running approximately 2 hours. Each meeting includes a recording of a live Zoom call with a wealth of information shared by Brian, Robert & David, as well as handouts and homework relevant to the theme of each meeting.

What participants are saying about A New Astrology, Series 1...
"The course is helping me, as I am growing my knowledge of myself and Anthroposophy in such a special way. It ties together key concepts from Rudolf Steiner and real world potential from the starry skies. It has also caused me to pause and listen more. Thank you so very much for sharing your knowledge and time to help initiate us greenhorns into the amazing world of Astrosophy!" ~ RH
"My goodness ... hard to pin down to one aspect... but a wise deepening of who I am, where I have come from and where I am going... life long questions I have been working on and thanks to this course I feel I have come along in leaps and bounds." ~ MS
"I loved the way the course was structured to allow for personal self-driven engagement with the material following the sessions. I wanted to extend the learning beyond the session itself." ~ AM
"The course is succinct, well thought out, and progressively builds on previous info. The presenters are knowledgeable, easy to understand, interact beautifully, and sprinkle in some fun too! It is great that recordings of the sessions are available for review. The resource list was also much appreciated." ~ AM
"I have had charts done before and they all seemed foreign to me, did not feel like me. With your version, ... the chart felt like me, something that I can work with my feelings as well as my intellect." ~ CS
"I really love your integrated approach to explaining concepts. I like being able to slow down and review the wealth of info in the recorded presentations so it can sink in. All of you have great passion for your work and it shows." ~ AN
"Even if I've worked with the zodiac and planets through doing eurythmy training, this has greatly enhanced my relationship and perception of these realities. As well, a new understanding of my life is dawning, granting me new impulses. I particularly appreciated living in the movement of going from the understanding of the physical body (through the zodiac) to the etheric body (planets), to the astral body (planets relationships), ending with the ego body (houses). This coupled with Venus-type and Sun-type aspects in addition to the well-known Mars-type and Mercury-type ones, are really a foundation to understanding astrology very differently. I truly appreciated your course and hope to be part of the next one." ~ CG
